A long standing rumor was that Lange was a merchant seaman pre war for the shell oil company and so took the shell logo from this experience and painted it on the tower.

However other crewmembers say they simply painted it on the tower prior to Lange arriving at the boat and that it was purely a maritime related symbol, nothing else.
